Top-four finishes for quintet of Menlo women wrestlers


Seniors Jacque Davis and Rebecca Medeiros each placed third in their respective divisions for the Menlo College women's wrestling team Saturday in the inaugural Lady Oaks Cultural Exchange at Haynes-Prim Pavilion.

Sophomore Sherry Sabado and freshman Michelle Jimenez each placed third in their respective pools while freshman Chanelle Alarcon took home a fourth place mark.

Prospective recruits Cheyenne Youngblood recorded a first place finish while Sam Klingel and Sarah Bollinger placed second and third respectively.

"It was really great to see the Lady Oaks work on new techniques they've been practicing," Menlo coach Marcie VanDusen said. "They wrestled really smart and as a whole we had a successful event with every team planning to return next year."
